Saoirse Ronan, whose highly anticipated movie "The Host" was not big at the box office, but rather a big flop, may have a sure blockbuster in her future. She told Sky News on Tuesday that she indeed has auditioned for a part in the upcoming "Star Wars" film (Episode VII).
While confirming rumors that came a few weeks ago from the normally very accurate Latino Review, Ronan was modest about auditioning. She said, "so has everyone."
It's unclear if that is the case, but it is clear that the original trio of "Star Wars" stars, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher are all anxious to perform in the new movie, and expected to, as well. Also named in multiple rumors are Benedict Cumberbatch, Ryan Gosling, Leonardo DiCaprio and Simon Pegg.
Cumberbatch and Pegg could join director J.J. Abrams as crossing over from the rebooted "Star Trek" franchise to "Star Wars."
It’s thought Ronan may have auditioned for the part of Han Solo (Ford) and Princess Leia’s (Fisher) daughter. However, when asked to reveal more about the film, she said simply that producers would "chop off her head with a light saber" if she revealed any more details.
